Ladies bike or small men's bike?
As the title suggests should I get a ladies bike or small men's? I'm 5'6" and I'm not exactly a lightweight lady to put it politely! I have improving fitness levels and I'm getting in to riding on trails. Rode a red route at Cannock Chase recently, great fun but my rockrider 5.1 was not coping well, which is to be expected! nice enough on towpaths but not really designed for heavy use! In fact I did fear for my life once or twice! I'd say my budget is about £400 and happy to buy second hand if I can get a good deal!
